“Manny, are you ready to stay home for a while?”
“No!!! I have an idea of where I want to go to next.”
That was a dumb question. As Carol wrote, “He’s had more excitement in the last six months than most people have in a lifetime.”
“I want to go whale watching, Mom. I didn’t see any whales in Europe or Australia. I didn’t even see one on the plane back to the United States. I’ve been a lot of places, Mom, and guess what?
“No whales, that’s what.”
“That’s all you have to say about all your wonderful travels, and about the amazing people you met and things you saw?”
“Oh, Mom. I love Carol and Glenn, AND MELISSA, and Ute and Ralph, and I had a great time, but did you know that Justin Beaver has his own website?”
“I think you mentioned it at least one hundred times before you left. You saw how much work he does to make that website didn’t you? Are you sure you want to do that? Did you tell all those people thank you for the wonderful time you had? I even saw you on Justin’s website eating chocolate, and having fun.”
“When I get all my pictures in order, I’m going to have a website and talk about all my travels. And I’m going to write books, and make a movie, and be famous like the Eternal Traveler and Justin Beaver.”
“Uh huh. Did you say thank you to Carol and Glenn for taking you all over Europe, New Zealand, and Australia? Did you thank Melissa for bringing you home?”
“Yeah, Mom. I love those people. I kissed Melissa, even. I didn’t kiss Justin, but I shook his hand. I gave Carol and Glenn a big hug. But I didn’t see any whales yet. Let’s go to Hawaii.”
Now dear bloggers, what do you think? Is Manny spoiled?
What about now?
